They that are mine enemies without cause have chased me a sore like a bird.
They have cut off my life in a pit, b and cast a stone upon me.
Waters streamed over my head; I said, I am cut off.
I called upon thy name, Jehovah, out of the lowest pit.
Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my sighing, at my cry.
Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee; thou saidst, Fear not.
Lord, thou hast pleaded the cause c of my soul, thou hast redeemed my life.
Jehovah, thou hast seen my wrong: judge thou my cause.
Thou hast seen all their vengeance, all their imaginations against me.
Thou hast heard their reproach, O Jehovah, all their imaginations against me;
the lips of those that rise up against me and their meditation against me all the day.
